UC Cooperative Extension enlisting ‘citizen scientists’

By
From page A6 | May 01, 2014 |

The UC Cooperative Extension plans to celebrate its centennial with its first crowd-sourced science project.

On May 8 — the anniversary of the signing of the federal act creating extension services — volunteers across the state will record their observations to three questions: How many pollinators do you see? How do you conserve water? And, Where is food grown in your community?

Observations may be recorded at http://beascientist.ucanr.edu.

Newly minted “citizen scientists” also can record their observations during an open house at Yolo County’s extension office, scheduled for 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. that same day.

Visitors to the office at 70 Cottonwood St. in Woodland will be able to learn about extension programs and history. Refreshments will be provided.

Cooperative Extension researchers and educators provide expertise in agriculture, environmental issues, economics, youth development and nutrition.

For more information, contact Rachael Long at 530-666-8734 or rflong@ucanr.edu.
